This workshop aims to provide area studies content and pedagogy training to history teachers in the Greater Los Angeles area for Unit 9 Sites of Encounter for 7th grade under the CA History-Social Science Framework. The workshop will give history educators an opportunity to hear lectures from scholars to gain more historical knowledge for these particular sites of encounter and receive training for designing lessons and curriculum to align with the unit under the HSS Framework. There is also an opportunity for interested teachers to submit a lesson plan after the workshop to receive a $200 stipend.

This workshop is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant through the UCLA Center for Southeast Asian Studies and UCLA Center for Near Eastern Studies, in collaboration with the UCLA History-Geography Project, a teacher education program on campus and the UCLA office of the CA History-Social Science Project.
